I can fix the problem by editing speakupmap.map and running the command
./genmap speakupmap.map >/proc/speakup/keymap
The genmap program is in the drivers/char/speakup directory. This can
be run as a normal user, but it will have to be done every time you boot
Is this the kind of thing I should be filing bug reports about, or
should it just be documented somewhere in a speakup Gentoo FAQ?
